    unpleasantness. However, as Freedman reported in his influential text of , Crowding and Behavior, density had no appreciable negative effect among human beings. His work was influential, leading many to argue by the late s, that while density may have been pathological among lower animals, human beings were capable of coping with crowding.   The difference between resource-and organism-weighted densities is illustrated for the human population of a number of US states in Table (where the 'resource' is simply land area). The organism-weighted densities are so much larger than the usual, but rather unhelpful, resource-weighted densities essentially because most people live.

    Ecologists Anne and Paul Ehrlich assert: The key to understanding overpopulation is not population density but the num- bers of people in an area relative to its resources and the capacity of the envi- ronment to sustain human activities: that is, to the area's carrying capacity. Population Density Stress Is Killing Us Now! Greeley Miklashek You may not want to hear it, and when I started medical practice 46 years ago, I certainly did not plan on finding it, but human overpopulation and our modern life-style choices are causing physiological changes responsible for our top ten killing “diseases of civilization”.File Size: KB.

Health Consequences of Population Density and Crowding By John Cassel This chapter argues that the relationship between overcrowding and illness and social pathology is not nearly as simple or unidirectional as the current excitement over the phenomenon of the "behavioral sink" among rats and mice has led people to by: 1.

independent positive effect of density on increased pathology is strongly supported, whereas the effect of crowding is less, and except for mental hospital admissions, has a negative weight in the estimated equations.

Although the analysis is limited to one city and does not consider the effects of overall population density on human behavior, the author does show that when people feel crowded, they tend to withdraw from the situation to find less stressful situations.

From these studies it became obvious that it was necessary to distin- guish between density at the level of the macroenvironment (as measured, for example, by persons per acre) and over- crowding.

However, results from human studies of crowding proved inconsistent.

For two archetypal examples of crowding-induced social pathology, population density can be seen as strongly patterning the supposed "pathologies" via correlated effects on levels of intermale competition.

The Impact of Crowding on Human Behavior We approached it from two different points of view— studies of the actual relationship be tween population density .This chapter discusses determinants and effects of crowding.

Analysis of crowding investigates two questions: that is, determinants of crowding and the consequences of crowding. Examination of the difficulties associated with the density model indicated that a narrow definition of crowding in terms of density is by: population or urban problems published per unit of time.
